Semi- retired teacher, married to Elaine with two adult children, one who is living in London and the other In Rotherham. Elaine is from Manchester and moved to NZ in 1980.
We both love travelling, reading, cryptic crosswords, good red wine among many other things. I love sport especially rugby, football and cricket. I support QPR and the rest of the family Man U. Favourite travel destinations include Sri Lanka, Rarotonga, China, Crete, the UK, Berlin, Italy, Ireland, Spain, the Maldives. Heroes include Leonardo, Dickens, Raphael, Coleridge, Bob Dylan Don Bradman, Shakespeare, Mandela and more recently Caravaggio. Have also recently fallen in love......with my ipad which is perhaps the best invention since the wheel. When travelling we love waterfalls, castles, art galleries, churches, exploring the history of an area, good pubs and meeting local people. Also enjoy writing but better stop as this could become a novel.
